Investigating floral choice in bees (megachilidae) using pollen metabarcoding.
Interactions between plants and their pollinators are often poorly understood, specifically in a species-diverse country such as South Africa. Traditional methods of studying plant-pollinator interactions are time-consuming ...
The glutaredoxin/glutathione post-stress recovery system is dependent on the availability of glutathione in the cell.
The cellular response to oxidative stress involves three interconnected processes: reactive oxygen species detoxification, adaptation and repair. Glutathionylation is an adaptive response in which glutathione binds to ...
Quantification of the thioredoxin system.
Abstract available in PDF file.
Modelling and analysis of peroxiredoxin kinetics for systems biology applications.
Oxidative stress, caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS) such as hydrogen peroxide, can have harmful effects on important cellular components and processes which can lead to cell death. Cells have evolved extensive ...
Dynamics of the glutathione/glutaredoxin system.
The glutathione/glutaredoxin system is made up of glutaredoxins, glutathione (GSH) and glutathione reductase (GLR). Glutaredoxins, which are involved in essential cellular functions such as DNA synthesis, iron metabolism ...
The dynamics of thioredoxin-dependent reactions.
The thioredoxin system, comprising thioredoxin (Trx), thioredoxin reductase (TrxR) and NADPH, is present in most organisms from prokaryotes to eukaryotes. The system plays a central role in the redox regulation of several ...
Association of genetic polymorphisms in select HIV-1 replication cofactors with susceptibility to HIV-1 infection and disease progression.
Objective.Humans differ substantially with respect to susceptibility to human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection and disease progression. This heterogeneity is attributed to the interplay between the environment, ...
Identification of tissue specific differential methylation in human body fluids and its potential application in forensics.
In forensic investigations, human biological traces have great potential to serve as strong evidence in placing a suspect at the scene of a crime. In cases where activities leading to the deposition of an individual’s ...
